I found myself all caught up with everything I needed to do for our Labor Day barbeque tomorrow - how did that happen??
Anyway, a few weeks ago I was inspired by one of Yvonne's posts at StoneGable - she posted a tutorial for putting a wreath together. I found a couple of wreaths at Home Goods that I thought would be just right for my experimenting, and popped over to Michael's to pick up a few silks to decorate with.
I began placing flowers on the wreath according to Yvonne's directions - and then took a photo before dismantling it and glueing it back together. (You can see my daughter's copy of Rolling Stone magazine in the background - we are both in love with Jon Hamm from Mad Men.)
The hydrangeas are real - they dry so well for me in the house I thought I'd give them a try on the wreath. The other berries, etc were all purchased at Michael's.
Here's a close up of the wreath on the front door to the conservatory.
I really liked the way the colors of the flowers and berries all worked so well together.
Oops - you can see me in the reflection...yikes!
I love having the time to be creative and to make something that can help make Frog Hollow Farm feel festive and naturally seasonal in a simple way, without going too overboard.
